I’ll be honest with you, this has not been the easiest post to write. Since it’s been so difficult to write, I’m keeping it short.
After losing my dad, suffering a mental breakdown, cutting ties with a close friend and making some serious life changes – it took one quote to pull me out of the wordless abyss and trigger what 2015 is all about.
“I am a woman with thoughts and questions and shit to say. I say if I’m beautiful. I say if I’m strong. You will not determine my story — I will.” – Amy Schumer
This is my story, my life – and I’m going to live it my way. After everything that has transpired in 2014, I’ve learned that I am beyond blessed with people who truly want to see me thrive and be the best version of me. So many individuals has stepped in and helped me navigate my way back into this world and remembering my place within it. I cannot extend enough love for each of the people who have touched my life – spanning from my blog besties, forever friends, adoptive parents, and tbf.
This isn’t about resolutions, this is about realizations.
Here’s the deal, never settle. Don’t let people take advantage of you, because it gets exhausting. Cherish those nearest and dearest to you. Don’t take any bullshit from anybody. Don’t be afraid to let go. Reach for your dreams/goals, even when you think they may be unattainable. Time will eventually heal that aching pain. Keep moving forward!
My focus is real. This isn’t about a new year,
new me. Frankly, I like the me that I already am. This is a new year, an even better me.
2015 is going to be a year of dreams and schemes – so make it happen.
Oh and Dallas, eat your heart out – 2015 will be quite the ride!
